Supporting over 14,500 people in more than 300 communities across Australia, Life Without Barriers (LWB) is a leading social purpose organisation delivering services in the areas of disability, child, youth and family, aged care, mental health and support for refugee and asylum seekers.

Life Without Barriers offers a range of mental health and housing support services, within a framework of recovery. Its service focuses on intensive care management which aims to assist individuals and families re-establish connections, develop their existing strengths and maximise resilience.

A leading edge career opportunity

Life Without Barriers now has an opportunity for a Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist or Social Worker to join their team as a Therapist on a full-time basis, in Tamworth, NSW.

Reporting to the MST-CAN Supervisor your primary purpose will be to conduct therapy and case management associated with Multi-Systemic Therapy (Child Abuse and Neglect). You will provide in-home clinical services, negotiate therapeutic goals and use systemic resources to assist in meeting these goals. You will have a case load of approximately 4-5 families around Tamworth.

More specifically, this will include, but not be limited to:

* Conducting MST-CAN assessments including reviewing of referral information, identifying and engaging key participants, identifying systemic strengths and weaknesses, and developing an analysis of the fit of problem behaviours within the ecological context;

* Engaging primary caregivers and other key participants in active change-oriented treatment by identifying and overcoming barriers to engagement;

* Providing direct clinical treatment using methods compatible with MST principles and practices; and

* Maintaining clear and concise documentation of treatment efforts that promote peer and supervisory review and feedback, and that demonstrate compliance with MST principles and the MST analytic process.

Any prior experience in MST or MST-CAN delivery will be highly regarded, but is not mandatory.

This position would be well-suited to an experienced Clinical Psychologist or similar who has a few years experience under their belt and are looking to join an organsation that is leading the charge on MST and MST-CAN delivery in Australia. Importantly, LWB is looking for candidates who are willing and able to offer home-based intervention services with confidence, professionalism and empathy.

What we can offer you in return

This is a great opportunity to work in a highly validated program that is delivered globally and offers support and structured engagement with your client base.

You will be joining a wonderful, supportive group of people who will value your contribution and you will see the impact they are making on the local Tamworth community each day, namely reducing the number of children going into care.

For your hard work and dedication, you will be rewarded with a highly competitive remuneration package circa $120,000 which is made up of a base salary of $98,692 and a range of great benefits, including:

* Part-time on-call allowance of $3,257;
